Description A letter from the National Military Sisterhood of America to Washburn College dated January 8, 1920.

Letter starts off by stating that the Topeka chapter has made as state-wide survey on what Kansas colleges and universities are doing to help veterans wishing to go back to school. From survey's received so far, the letter notes that uniformed credits have been given, and that the schools are more than willing to help returning veterans. It goes on to use Ottowa University as an example of one way to help veterans, and states that the fall semester came to soon for many of the veterans to do anything in regards to school. The letter then suggests that Washburn College should by for veteran's tuitions, but then says that the Sisterhood knows that the college is struggling financially.

Signed by National President Mrs. Charles I. Martin, State President Mrs. J. F. Rees, and committee members Mrs. W.W. Bowmann, Mrs. Foster, and Mrs. E. G. Fable.

From the service of Grace M. Fable, president of the Topeka Chapter of the National Military Sisterhood of America and mother of Frank Fable, Bty. A 130th FA, 35th Division.
